Medical-legal courts



On the proposal for special expert courts to review medical liability claims, championed most prominently by author Phil Howard's Common Good (see here, here, here and here), reader Stan Sipple writes in to say: "Be careful what you wish for. Here in Nebraska, jury verdicts favorable to the plaintiff are few and far between. Speaking from experience and word of mouth, good PI attorneys have a much better chance in workers' comp court, which proceeds by way of bench trials."
